Ghostlight Theatre Bringing CircEsteem to Town
CircEsteem, a program using circus apparatus, has been improving the lives of young people in Chicago for 19 years.  Now Dottie Gietler, youth leadership director for Ghostlight Theatre, announced today that a CircEsteem Summer Camp will be offered in two weeks in June 2019.  Campers, ages 6-16, will be given opportunities to learn a variety of circus activities.  See the short video below for an introduction.

The camp is one or two weeks, June 17-21 and June 24-28, 9 am to 4 pm, with a public performance at the end of each week.  The camp costs $250 each week, free transportation is available on request.  To learn more, donate or volunteer, go to www.ghostlightbh.com

Martha "Martie" Hesse is the executive director of The Ghostlight Theatre. She has been working for the past 18 months to establish her 501c3, purchasing a building at 101 Hinkley in the Arts District of Benton Harbor, connected to the local arts community, especially Paul Mow, music director of Twin City Players. After acquiring a matching grant of $50,000 from Michigan Economic Development, she raise $100,000 from local enthusiasts and businesses. A full slate of shows have been planned for this summer, starting with Bridges of Madison County opening June 13, 2019. There are tons of opportunities to participate, volunteer, donate, buy a seat with your name on it, etc.  For the other shows for summer 2019 and more information click here.  Martie explained that the ghostlight is the light left on so the theatre would not be completely dark.
